Hi, I will be fostering a 3 year old and it's been a while since my kids used car seats so I'm out of touch! I have a Dodge Ram crew cab and if possible would like the car seat to go in the middle although the middle seat is shorter than the outboard seats so it may not work. I also recall from having friends kids in the truck that the headrest sticks forward pushing taller carseats forward but if you remove the headrest then the carseat leans on the window. Would love some help picking out a great carseat especially if anyone has experience with same truck. Thank you!

Hello and sorry for the delay. Seating positions with fixed head restraints and short seat cushions can be problematic. I don't have a specific suggestion for your particular vehicle, but if you can't find a conventional combination harness/booster seat that fits, perhaps a RideSafer Vest would be an option? https://amzn.to/3lt9Klv
